When a photographer who’s worked for Martha Stewart Living puts her creative skills to work crafting a home in a classic Carroll Gardens townhouse, the results tend to photograph well. That’s certainly the case with this gorgeous three-story brick house at 189 Huntington Street. Lifestyle, food, fashion and interiors photographer Dana Gallagher has clearly trained her editorial and design eye on every detail. Comprised of an upstairs owners’ duplex and a beautifully outfitted one-bedroom garden apartment below–each with an outdoor oasis–this 20-foot-wide two-family property could also be transformed easily into a single-family dream house.

Enter the two-bedroom upper duplex through the parlor level hall into a sunny living room with high ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace and tall windows that look out over the home’s front gardens and tree-lined street.

A perfect-for-gathering dining room separates the barefoot-friendly front living room from the stylish chef’s kitchen. Windowed partitions, skylights and atelier-style windows flood the pass-through kitchen with sunlight. A GE Monogram range and hood, enormous farmhouse sink and butcher block and soapstone countertops make food preparation and cleanup a breeze.

Massive glass and steel casement windows and doors open the home to the outdoors; you can walk right out onto a quiet deck that overlooks the classic landscaped elegance of a south Brooklyn garden.

On the third floor you’ll find a luxurious master suite including a walk-in closet and a smartly-outfitted and configured bath boasting a deep ceramic tub and waterworks rain shower, plus a good-sized second bedroom.

Tucked into a hallway alcove is a spacious, light-filled office; the upper unit also has central a/c for all-season comfort.

The garden-level apartment has a second rustic dream kitchen with a wall of custom casement windows looking out onto the rear garden. A nicely sized bedroom, under-stair storage and a well-appointed bathroom with a vintage claw-foot tub round out the lower unit.

This pretty house is on an even prettier block, within blocks from favorite restaurants and gathering spots; the south Brooklyn Whole Foods Market is a few blocks away and the F and G trains stop nearby for destinations in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens.
